Encouraging Flu Shots this Season

Oct 18, 2021

Flu is poised to make a resurgence this fall and winter after an unusually calm 2020 due to COVID prevention measures. The CDC encourages individuals six months or older to get a flu shot. Flu shots are safe to receive alongside COVID vaccines and are strongly encouraged for at-risk populations.

A recent study highlighted health disparities related to flu; people of color are more likely to be hospitalized for flu with children of color at higher risk of death. Others at high risk of flu-related complications include adults 65 and older, adults with chronic health conditions, pregnant women and children younger than five.
